The Association of Metropolitan Authorities said today that the latest performance indicators report shows that the police and fire service are getting better at what they do.

AMA chair Jeremy Beecham said:

'Despite real cuts in government funding, the performance indicators published show that the police made significant progress the year before last.'

The report particularly highlights improved police speed in dealing with emergency phone calls and improved clear-up rates for violent crime.

Sir Jeremy added that the report also proved that the fire service is good value for money - costing only 50p a person per week. He said that neither service was complacent and nor could they afford to be.

'If the government continues to cut money it provides for local services then police and fire fighters will find it hard to continue improving their performance.'
